A Newry woman has been rushed to hospital after being swamped by plastic shopping bags when she opened one of her kitchen cupboards.
Maureen Keenan was preparing to visit Tesco’s when the accident happened. She told Newry Spud:
“I always forget to take the frigging things and I always end up paying about £2 just in carrier bag charges. I was so pleased with myself that I’d remembered to take them before I left the house.
When I opened my cupboard drawer where I keep them the whole lot came tumbling out, sweeping me off my feet and taking me to the floor. I couldn’t breathe. Thankfully, Joan my next door neighbour popped her head around the back door because she was returning the dildo I’d lent her. She was able to call an ambulance and they got me out.”
Maureen is hoping to make a full recovery. Her shopping trip was undertaken by her friend Joan.
